Wet Ingredients

  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup yogurt
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil or unsalted butter, melted
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon lemon extract
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • finely grated zest of 1 lemon

Dry Ingredients

  • 1 cup gluten-free baking flour
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Lemon Icing

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2-3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon extract


  • Preheat the oven to 350° and grease an 8x4 or 9×5 inch loaf pan. Set the pan aside.
  • Add the two eggs to a large mixing bowl and beat until frothy, around 1-2 minutes.
  • Next, add the sugar, yogurt, melted oil, lemon juice, lemon zest, vanilla, and lemon extract to the large bowl. Mix for 30 seconds.
  • Stir in the dry ingredients: gluten-free flour, almond flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix until well combined.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan. Bake for 45-50 minutes, or until the center comes out clean with a toothpick.
  • Remove the loaf from the oven and let it sit in the pan for 10 minutes. Then remove the bread from the pan and place it on a cooling rack for 1-2 hours.
  • Make sure the bread is completely cooled before adding the glaze.

Instructions for Lemon Glaze

  • In a small bowl, stir together the powdered sugar, lemon juice, and lemon extract.
    Pour the glaze to the top of the loaf and carefully spread it with the back of a spoon. Allow 5 minutes for the glaze to harden. Serve immediately.
  • Store in a tightly sealed container at room temperature for up to 3 days.
